My cousin, Caitlyn told me about this drink called a London Fog. I immediately went to the local cafe in downtown Oakland to see if they made this drink, and much to my pleasant surprise, they do!! I have gotten it a few times since then, it’s such a nice pick me up in the afternoon, especially on rainy days, there’s just something about this delicious beverage that brings me comfort. I don’t have an exact recipe, but when I searched for one, all of them pretty much said to add as much milk, sweetener, etc… to suit your taste. Here are the ingredients:
Earl Grey Tea
All of the recipes I read said to make a strong cup, so if I were to make this myself, I would probably use 2 tea bags.
The amount of milk depends on how creamy you like your tea.
The cafe I go to uses a shot of this, and I think it’s perfect, but if you are making it, adjust it to suit your taste.
Some recipes said some people add sugar and vanilla, you can make it however you like, but I prefer just the tea, steamed milk, and lavender syrup, because the syrup is sweet enough for me, I don’t think it needs anything extra.
Starbucks also sells this drink, but they don’t add lavender, they just use vanilla. It is good, but I love the shot of lavender with the Earl Grey. They compliment each other very well!
Please let me know what you think if you try this. I may just have to treat myself to a cup this afternoon!
